    Hi, At the minute i'm on 1.1k real, active followers, building up my new account after the last ban purge. I'm getting about 3 DMs a day from people within my niche asking for features. At the moment I do it on an S4S basis, as I know i'm nowhere near high enough to start charging.

    I'm just wondering at what level of followers should I start selling shoutouts and features?

    1.1k is too small to charge people in my opinion, I am noticing that people are willing to pay for s4s when you start having upper numbers anywhere from 20k and up. Shoot even 20k could be too small to be charging, but as for me personally I would like to pay for s4s on accounts that have at least 150k followers and all depends on their likes/comments of recent photos too. I think you should maybe just do free even exchange s4s until you grow your accounts bigger!

    Yeah, I've been asking myself the same question. I'm on 10.7 or something. :)
    Will wait some more & then think of that. If it will be an option, after all.

    I would start at around 15k Followers and 1-2k likes per Picture!

    You can do it as soon as you start receiving them, lol. There's no set amount.

    If people find your page engaging and targeted, you will get buyers regardless of the amount of followers you have.

    For example, I once bought a s/o on a page with less than 5k followers.

    I would say you can start somewhere when you reach 20k or more followers. But you can obviously accept offers if you start getting any before that.

    But make sure that everything looks real and your followers are active and like and comment on your pictures. The more the engagement, the better!
